Clean AC Drainpipe to Avoid Home Catastrophe

American Air & Heat offers thorough end-of-summer maintenance


Oviedo, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2017 -- One of the most overlooked parts of a central air conditioner is the drain line or condensate line. Located outside the home, it helps remove condensation that the AC's evaporator coil produces. It's easy to spot because there's usually water dripping from it.

When it is not maintained properly, this drainpipe can fill up with algae and organic growth, causing it to clog. That's a potentially disastrous situation that homeowners should avoid at all costs. But as the cooling season winds down and the heating season begins, many homeowners are focused on scheduling heating services in Lake Mary, FL, and the surrounding area. Of course, that's important. But it's also important to check condensate lines and other AC equipment that worked hard over the summer months.

Some HVAC contractors don't give the AC drainpipe the attention it deserves. Not American Air & Heat. Its technicians make it their business to thoroughly inspect the drainpipe during a maintenance visit to keep the pipe clear and clean, allowing the condensate to flow properly. When this pipe is clogged, water can back up and seriously damage a home.

There's still some summer heat left. The team at American Air & Heat recommends cleaning the AC drainpipe at this time of year because it's also when the Orlando area experiences increased rainfall and greater humidity.

As summer comes to an end, homeowners and businesses can rely on American Air & Heat to prepare their HVAC units for the colder months, as well. This pre-winter preparation allows customers to avoid the need for unexpected heating repair services in Orlando, FL, and beyond.
